In Donald Miller’s Business Made Simple Daily, he provided three indicators that a person is not a leader. He said, people are often put into leadership positions when really, by temperament, they are not leaders. When a leadership role is not a good fit, this is what happens:
When we don’t take the risks involved in our faith, similar indicators are present.
It is important for us each to reflect on these things. We are all different and how we “do faith” is different. But my role as your pastor is to make sure you are growing. Like the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Church in Ephesus (3:16-17), "I pray that from God's glorious, unlimited resources the Spirit will empower you with inner strength. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. (NLT)
Together, we are the body of Jesus in our community, time, and place. Please reach out me if you would like to reflect on your faith walk. Your growth in faith brings God great joy!
